Oil Distributing Company, part of the northern RelaDyne network, was one of four well-established businesses that merged to form RelaDyne in November 2010. Started in 1982, Oil Distributing was co-founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, by Dick Oehler and his son, Doug. Over its 28 years of business, the company has grown from 4 employees to 94, 2 delivery trucks to 38, and 1 location to 3, and has seen fantastic growth from 200,000 gallons to 7 million gallons of product sold.
In early 2013, RelaDyne acquired the lubricant business of Newcomb Oil in Kentucky, thus expanding its northern footprint to better serve its customers. The two Newcomb Oil locations in Bardstown and Paducah, Kentucky, operate under this Cincinnati branch of RelaDyne as two additional locations to the existing Oil Distributing locations.
Company co-founder and former president Doug Oehler serves as RelaDyne’s Executive Vice President of Distribution for the North, while former Vice President of Sales Dan Oehler serves as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for RelaDyne.
As a RelaDyne company, Oil Distributing will be able to do so much more. Not only will we gain a larger geographic footprint, we can continue to grow our core mission – to be a trusted advisor to the many customers we serve.Doug Oehler
